Jacksonville teen, Thomas Partlow, 19, and his two friends stabbed a man to death for $3.00. He was 16 at the time and was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. Last week, an appeals court overturned Thomas sentence because the U. S. Supreme Court last year decided that a sentence of life without parole for minors, is unconstitutional. Another Jacksonville youth, Shimeek D. Grindine was 15 years of age when he shot at a man during an attempted robbery. Grindine received a sentence of 70 years in prison. He can qualify for parole after serving about 75% of his sentence. Bearing this in mind, Partlow is now eligible for a prison term of how many years? It was not easy for this Stanton High graduate, even though she was very competent, to replace the man who was leaving after serving 20 years in the position of Council Secretary. There were members of the council who did not agree that a Black woman should get the position, and therefore protested. However, after some councilmen walked out, the next vote went without debate and Cheryl Peeples became the highest paid and first black female to work in Jacksonvilles City Council Chamber in 1987. Her salary for this position was $17,500.00. Mrs. Kidd passed on November 6, 1998 but Councilman Warren Jones was able to get her the recognition she deserved for her loyal and professional service to the City of Jacksonville. Therefore, on Tuesday, January 8, 2013, Mrs. Kidd was honored posthumously during City Council meeting. A resolution was read, and her family and friends accepted the honor. ugtxkpi"{qw"ukpeg"3;730 Tcvgf"‰C-“"d{"vjg Dgvvgt"Dwukpguu"Dwtgcw Cp"Cyctf Ykppkpi Rwdnkecvkqp Tgcf"Vjg"Hnqtkfc cpf"Igqtikc"Uvct Pgyurcrgtu0vjghnqtkfcuvct0eqo Nkuvgp"vq"KORCEV Tcfkq"Vcnm"Ujqy0 The peoples choice Vjg"Hnqtkfc"Uvct R0"Q0"Dqz"6284; Lcemuqpxknng."HN"54425 PQTVJGCUV"HNQTKFC‘U"QNFGUV."NCTIGUV."OQUV"TGCF"CHTKECP"COGTKECP"QYPGF"PGYURCRGT Rtguqtvgf"Uvcpfctf W0U0"Rquvcig"Rckf Lcemuqpxknng."HN Rgtokv""Pq0"5839 ETKOG""("LWUVKEG Vjg"Hnqtkfc"Uvct.

Because of the number of false claims that were filed, the insurance companies tipped off law enforcement. Those arrested included the ones who faked the accidents, those who recruited them as well as the person running the operation and her office staff. Between March and October 2012, at least 19 illegal claims were filed.Xkqngpeg"Cickpuv"Yqogp"Cev"Gzrktgf The News Service of Florida reported that advocates for battered women and sexual assault survivors are totally shocked that Congress adjourned without taking up a bill that would have reauthorized the Violence Women Act. The report says that the criminal justice system was helping those abused victims by providing services. It stated that since Florida has such a large population of immigrant women, there is a higher risk for violence in relationships. The act has been reauthorized twice and, according to the information, it was traditionally bipartisan. However, the U. S. Senate voted 68-31 to pass a reauthorization bill but the House did not do so because they felt it protected undocumented immigrants, Native Americans and lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender people, and barely passed its version in May 222 to 205. With no further action, the bill officially died. Abusers know there are cracks in the system, and they leap through them every day.,Ž said Linda Osmundson of the battered womens shelter in St. Petersburg. An aide to Leahys Senate Judiciary Committee said the bill will be introduced for reauthorization early when the 112th Congress convenes. Funding is already in place. According to the news service, Florida funds its domestic violence services primarily through a trust fund along with general revenues. Leiss Wiseman of the Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence said, the states domestic violence shelters turned away 3, 471 people in Fiscal Year 2011-2012.Ekv{"Mkemu Qhh"Jqognguu Xgvgtcpu Tgkpvgitcvkqp RtqitcoThe City of Jacksonville along with Military Affairs, Veterans and Disabled Services, launched the Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program (HVRP), funded by a $218.260 grant from the U. S. Department of Labor, to provide services to assist homeless veterans reintegrate into civilian life and help them gain meaningful employment. To utilize this service, the veteran must be homeless, living in a temporary shelter or be facing loss of housing through foreclosure or eviction, The emphasis on helping homeless acquire and retain jobs is enhanced through coordination with local veterans services and organizations, such as Work Source.

Kv‘u"Nkvvng"OggejkgJANUARY 12, 2013THE STARPAGE 3 One Sunday at Zion Hope Missionary Baptist Church, the Sunday School teacher, finished the lesson earlier than planned so, she decided to have a question & answer period. This was a great opportunity for Little Meechie so he raised his hand and said to the teacher, "There's something I can't figure out." "What's that Dementrious?" asked the teacher. "Well according' to the Bible, the Children of Israel crossed the Red Sea, right?" "Right," said the teacher. "And the Children of Israel beat up the Philistines, right?" "Er--right," she responded. "And the Children of Israel built the Temple, right?" "Again you're right." "And the Children of Israel fought the 'Egyptians; and the Children of Israel fought the Romans; and the Children of Israel were always doing something important, right?" "All that is right, too," agreed the teacher. So what's your question?" "What I want to know is this," said Lil Meechie. "If the children did all of that, what was all the grown-ups doing?"....I'm just asking.

And, as part of the silver anniversary, O' Connell says theyre revamping the Lotterys image with a new logo. The familiar flamingo and sunset logo will be gone, but she says its time to bring that flamingo into the 21st century with a modern design. The new brand has been in the works for about a year. The Florida and Georgia Star are not predictors. We are passing on some of the predictions that we have read and either agree or question. So, read these for knowledge or fun. 1. We will have more digital and mobile communications tools as well as more time saving devices. This means more growth in digital information and services. 2. Emphasis will be placed on education and our society will begin to read more as well as write more. Texting will increase. 3. Immigration reform will come through and the Republicans will stand with the Democrats with the hope of winning new seats or keeping their seats after realizing the strength of the minority voters that had been overlooked. There will be a large group that will not want reform so there will be strong border restrictions. 4. There will be changes on gun control. The main pressure will be on those who feel that assault weapons are more desirable in protecting themselves and families but it will be difficult for them to explain why a person would need multiple bullets to defend themselves. 5. Florida will make a change on the Stand Your GroundŽ law because of the pressure based on the teens killed and changes in the gun law. 6. People may spend less keeping homes warm because home-heating oil and gas will b e cheaper as the economy improves. 7. Manufacturing jobs should pick up. Such will be a leading resource in jobs that really promote trades, and thats a really good way to go. Trades never go out of business „ plumbers, electricians, welders. All those things, theyre big jobs. 8. African Americans and others will see that the time is now for them to begin to supp ort each other if they wish to have economic growth. Looking back at history and the way things are now economically with such a high unemployment rate, the job market can only change with them making changes. 9. Imperva warns that hackers will increasingly target cloud services, where more of our data is kept. Small vulnerabilities in one service can be used to grab information which can be used to attack other services. 10. Well see the transfer of enormous wealth in a heartbeat. Even some of the very wealthy will lose everything overnight. Systems of finance are going to change and no matter what the experts think will happen, the actuality will be different. More people than ever will be affected. Pensions are no longer secure and indeed they may be unable to pay out when the time comes. Insurance companies will go under and people who have paid premiums in good faith may end up with nothing if the company is b ankrupt when their house is swept up in a tsunami or a fire burns down everything they own. The last prediction is just a warning to the rich, a nice way of saying, share.

Welcome Talk of the Town! by Frances Bradley / Photos by Volume Burks Healthy adjective Wholesome, well, hardy, vigor of body, mind, or spirit Pamper verb (tr). indulge, spoil, coddle At Spa Laterra, being healthy and being pampered are synonymous. Located adjacent to King & Bear Golf Course in World Golf Village, this elegant day spa offers a full complement of massages, facials, body scrubs and wraps, makeup artistry, hair care, and nail services. The gracious and dynamic owner, Juanita Wright, invited us for a tour of the facilities, and, it was evident from the moment we walked into the warm reception area that we were in for the experience of a lifetime. The first thing I noticed as I approached the reception desk was the laminated sign, prominently displayed, Spa Laterra welcomes The Florida Star.Ž Before we started our services, Juanita showed us around the facility which has 11 treatment rooms, including 2 couples retreats, womens and mens private waiting rooms, locker areas, changing facilities, showers, and steam rooms, and a circular relaxation lounge with a soothing rain shower feature. The spa also offers an indoor/outdoor boardroom suite and party area with WIFI for social gatherings, business meetings, and catered events. After changing into comfortable robes and slippers, we were shown to the circular relaxation lounge, where guests are offered tea cookies and chilled green tea in champagne flutes while waiting to be taken to a treatment room. A variety of nuts, fruit-infused water, and other light refreshments are available on an invitingly arranged side board outside the lounge. At Juanitas suggestion, I had the Raindrop Therapy Massage, which combines massage with intermittent application of nine (9) essential oils, dribbled onto the spinal cord like rain dropsŽ. I was so totally relaxed that I wondered if I snored when I nodded off while on the table! The immediate result was a feeling of euphoria which made gave me the sense of floating on air. Long term (for several weeks post-treatment), I was greatly aware of the absence of a nagging headache that had bothered me for a couple of weeks, as well as the reduction of swelling in my feet which I had also been experiencing! Ok Sun had the Warm Algae Wrap and Hydrating and Exfoliating Body Treatment. This customized treatment uses a seaweed wrap to detoxify, nourish the skin, reduce water retention, and boost metabolism. An additional layer of essential oils are applied to help the skin absorb the nourishing vitamins and amino acids from the algae treatment. They hydro-machine, a horizontal wandlike apparatus, sweeps over the body to aid in restoring vital hydration to the system. Heres what Ok Sun thought of her experience: All I can say is there are two ways to get to the top of a mountain at a ski resort … trudge up the mountain on foot or take a slow and easy ride on a ski lift. The end result is the same, but how you get there makes the difference. A Spa Laterra visit is like taking the ski lift!Ž Juanita Wright hails from Toronto, Canada. As an aesthetician and make-up artist, she has worked with celebrities, such as First Lady Michelle Obama, Jennifer Lopez, Patti Labelle, Bill Murray, and more. Since taking over Spa Laterra, Juanita has generously supported local charities in monetary contributions, silent auction items, and donated services. In addition to individual services, Spa Laterra is available for corporate meetings and group functions. This past year Wells Fargo hosted a corporate gathering at the spa. Juanita is confident in the five-star quality of the spas products and services, which can be customized to fit the needs of guests or groups. So, if youre thinking that spas are just for pampering, think about the added health benefits and book Spa Laterra today. The drive to Palm Coast is well worth it!

Deputies were dispatched to a Dennys restaurant in reference to a disturbance in the parking lot. Upon clearing the parking lot, the manager came out and said people were fighting inside. Police immediately saw 29-year-old Radrick Latron Outing when he picked up a table as if he was going to throw it at a group of people fighting. He was ordered to stop and finally dropped the table. He then turned toward the deputy in an aggressive manner. A Taser was used and he finally complied. A search revealed a plastic baggie in his front pocket that contained cocaine. Police then observed a 22-year-old Anreka Shana Bristol hit a 29-year-old woman in the face with a chair. and turn over tables to attack the victim.

She finally complied and was then arrested. The victim was transported by EMS to the Hospital and was later released. The victim was said not to have been involved in the fight and was actually a spectator in the restaurant. When Bristol was arrested 28-yearold EddieLee Outing, the brother of the victim, picked up a chair and held it over his head as if he was going to strike someone. He was ordered to stop but would not put the chair down and then went toward the officer with the chair. A Taser had to be used on Eddie as well before being arrested. Several tables, chairs, and a podium sustained about $300 in damages. All three were booked into jail.

Here are some things you should teach your children: Start with the Basics : € Make sure your children know their full name, address (city and state), and their phone number with area code. € Be sure kids know to call 911 in emergencies and how to use a public phone. Practice making emergency calls with a make-believe phone. € Tell your children never to accept rides or gifts from someone they and you dont know well. € Teach children to go to a store clerk, security guard, or police officer for help if lost in a mall or store, or on the street. € Set a good example with your own actions: lock doors and windows, and check to see whos there before opening the door. € Take time to listen carefully to your childrens fears and feelings about people and places„especially ones that scare them or make them feel uneasy. Tell them to trust their instincts when something frightens or troubles them. At School and Play : € Encourage your children to walk and play with friends, not alone. Tell them to avoid places that could be dangerous: vacant buildings, alleys, playgrounds or parks with broken equipment and litter. € Teach children to settle arguments with words, not fists, and to walk away when others are arguing. Remind them that taunting and teasing can hurt friends and make enemies. € Make sure your children are taking the safest routes to and from school, stores, and friends houses. Walk the routes together and point out places they could go for help. € Encourage kids to be alert in the neighborhood, and to tell a trusted adult„ you, a teacher, a neighbor, a police officer„about anything that doesnt seem quite right. € Check out the schools policies on absent children„are parents called when a child is absent? € Check out daycare and after-school programs„look at certifications, staff qualifications, rules on parental permission for field trips, reputation in the community, policies on parent participation. Protecting Your Child Against Sexual Abuse : € Teach your child that no one„not even a teacher or a close relative„has the right to touch him or her in a way that feels uncomfortable. Let them know that its okay to say no, get away, and tell a trusted adult. € Tell your child to stay away from strangers who hang around playgrounds, public restrooms, and schools. € Be alert for changes in your childs behavior that could signal sexual abuse: sudden secretiveness; withdrawal from activities; refusal to go to school; unexplained hostility toward a favorite babysitter or relative; increased anxiety. Some physical signs of abuse include bedwetting, loss of appetite, venereal disease, nightmares, and complaints of pain or irritation around the genitals. Your Safety Forensic Evidence Reveal Murder Suspect A murder suspect was arrested for a homicide from last year. On July 1, 2012 at approximately 5:18 p.m., detectives responded to a vacant field in reference to a deceased person that had been discovered. The deceased was found fully clothed and with a crackŽ pipe in his mouth. The body was turned over to the Medical Examiners Office to determine the cause of death. On July 2, 2012, the Medical Examiners Office conducted an autopsy on the victim and determined the cause of death to be homicidal violence. The victim had suffered upper body trauma and with the help of investigative leads and collected evidence, the suspect was identified as 46-year-old David Choppa. A warrant was issued this month for Choppa for second degree murder, tampering with evidence and petit theft. Police arrested Choppa at his residence on the same day. David Choppa Couple Report Missing Child and Police find over 100 Animals in Cages Inside Their Home A couple reported a missing child but was arrested after police discovered over 100 caged animals in their home. Just before 6:00 a.m., police responded to a call about a missing 16-month-old girl. 28-year-old Jeffrey ONeil and 26-year-old Jennifer Kovacs reported that the child, who was in their care, had crawled out of the crib, opened the front door, and had been missing for at least an hour. When police arrived on the scene they discovered that the couple were under the influence of alcohol. At the scene, the officers found a note from a relative saying they had picked up the child and was taken her to their home. The relative also said they wrote the note because they could not wake ONeil and the child was crying. The child was found with the relative. She was reported to be in good condition and was properly being taken care of. As police conducted the investigation, they discovered the home to be in horrible conditions with over 100 animals in 88 cages. The types of animals found were snakes, lizards, rats, mice, birds, rabbits, hamsters, hedgehogs, etc. Police say the animals were being bred and sold without the proper licensing and conditions. Three rats and one hamster were found dead and half consumed by other animals kept in the house. The animals were kept outside and throughout the home. The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) was called to the scene to conduct their investigation and remove the animals from the home. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) was also notified. ONeil and Kovacs were arrested for child abuse and animal cruelty. Jeffrey ONeil Jennifer Kovacs

Jaguars Name Former Falcons Executive David Caldwell General ManagerJANUARY 12, 2013 THESTAR PAGE9 John Oehser Jaguars.com David Caldwell is the new general manager of the Jaguars. Caldwell, a member of the Atlanta Falcons front office since 2008 and the teams director of player personnel this past season, was hired as the Jaguars general manager on Tuesday, the team announced Tuesday evening. We got our man,Ž Jaguars owner Shad Khan said in a statement. I have a lot of faith in David Caldwell and I can assure our fans that the best days for the Jacksonville Jaguars are in front of us.Ž Khan hired Caldwell after a nine-day search that began the day following the Jaguars final regular season game. I am thrilled to accept the offer to become the next general manager of the Jacksonville Jaguars,Ž Caldwell said. There are no bad GM opportunities in the NFL, but to work on behalf of a dynamic owner in a rabid football city like Jacksonville is truly special. This is where I wanted to be and I could not be happier. I can't wait to get to Jacksonville and get started.Ž Caldwell this past season oversaw both the Falcons college and professional scouting efforts, working with Falcons General Manager Thomas Dimitroff in those areas. He also played a day-to-day role in the analysis and evaluation of the Falcons current roster while aiding in the research on how to acquire future free agents,Ž according to the Falcons. Caldwell, who spent 10 years with the Indianapolis Colts while that franchise developed into a perennial playoff team and Super Bowl contender, spent 2008-2012 as the Falcons director of college scouting. In that role, he oversaw the teams college area and regional scouts. According to the Falcons, Caldwell also assimilated the information he received and presented it to Dimitroff with a goal of making the NFL Draft as effective as possible.Ž Caldwell in Indianapolis worked with then-President Bill Polian, joining the Colts when Polian took over that organization in 1998. Caldwell worked for the Colts from 1998-2007, spending his last two seasons there as a Western Regional Scout, with responsibilities including the Pac 10, Big 10 and Big 12. He previously had worked as an area scout, having started his NFL career with Polian with the Carolina Panthers in 1996-1997 as a scouting assistant. Caldwell, 38, attended John Carroll University. A native of Buffalo, New York, Caldwell and his wife, Joelle, have one son, David Michael II.

He was 25. We are extremely saddened by the passing of Jerry Brown, Jr.,ŽŽ Sharks managing partner Jeff Bouchy said. Our deepest sympathies go out to his family and friends. Jerry was a beloved Shark, and all who knew him in our organization loved him. He will be sorely missed.Ž Jerry was a great player, teammate and champion,Ž Sharks Head Coach Les Moss said. He made the most of his time with the Sharks and reached the goal of all AFL players by making it to the NFL. This is a truly sad and tragic loss of life for a young man whose best days were ahead of him. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all his family and teammates who knew and loved him for the great person he was.Ž Brown played a significant role on the Sharks ArenaBowl-winning team in 2011, ranking tied for second on the team with six sacks and third among Shark defenders with tackles for loss. He began the 2012 season with the San Antonio Talons before joining the Indianapolis Colts. He was elevated to the Colts active roster for one game in October, and then signed with the Cowboys practice squad October 24. Brown was a native of St. Louis, Missouri and played college football at Illinois.

Jacksonville teen, Thomas Partlow, 19, and his two friends stabbed a man to death for $3.00. He was 16 at the time and was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. Last week, an appeals court overturned Thomas sentence because the U. S. Supreme Court last year decided that a sentence of life without parole for minors, is unconstitutional. Another Jacksonville youth, Shimeek D. Grindine was 15 years of age when he shot at a man during an attempted robbery. Grindine received a sentence of 70 years in prison. He can qualify for parole after serving about 75% of his sentence. Bearing this in mind, Partlow is now eligible for a prison term of how many years? It was not easy for this Stanton High graduate, even though she was very competent, to replace the man who was leaving after serving 20 years in the position of Council Secretary. There were members of the council who did not agree that a Black woman should get the position, and therefore protested. However, after some councilmen walked out, the next vote went without debate and Cheryl Peeples became the highest paid and first black female to work in Jacksonvilles City Council Chamber in 1987. Her salary for this position was $17,500.00. Mrs. Kidd passed on November 6, 1998 but Councilman Warren Jones was able to get her the recognition she deserved for her loyal and professional service to the City of Jacksonville. Therefore, on Tuesday, January 8, 2013, Mrs. Kidd was honored posthumously during City Council meeting. A resolution was read, and her family and friends accepted the honor. ugtxkpi"{qw"ukpeg"3;730 Tcvgf"C-"d{"vjg Dgvvgt"Dwukpguu"Dwtgcw Cp"Cyctf Ykppkpi Rwdnkecvkqp Tgcf"Vjg"Hnqtkfc cpf"Igqtikc"Uvct Pgyurcrgtu0vjghnqtkfcuvct0eqoNkuvgp"vq"KORCEV Tcfkq"Vcnm"Ujqy0 The people s choice Vjg"Hnqtkfc"Uvct R0"Q0"Dqz"6284; Lcemuqpxknng."HN"54425 PQTVJGCUV"HNQTKFCU"QNFGUV."NCTIGUV."OQUV"TGCF"CHTKECP"COGTKECP"QYPGF"PGYURCRGT Rtguqtvgf"Uvcpfctf W0U0"Rquvcig"Rckf Lcemuqpxknng."HN Rgtokv""Pq0"5839 ETKOG""("LWUVKEG Vjg"Hnqtkfc"Uvct.

Because of the number of false claims that were filed, the insurance companies tipped off law enforcement. Those arrested included the ones who faked the accidents, those who recruited them as well as the person running the operation and her office staff. Between March and October 2012, at least 19 illegal claims were filed.Xkqngpeg"Cickpuv"Yqogp"Cev"Gzrktgf The News Service of Florida reported that advocates for battered women and sexual assault survivors are totally shocked that Congress adjourned without taking up a bill that would have reauthorized the Violence Women Act. The report says that the criminal justice system was helping those abused victims by providing services. It stated that since Florida has such a large population of immigrant women, there is a higher risk for violence in relationships. The act has been reauthorized twice and, according to the information, it was traditionally bipartisan. However, the U. S. Senate voted 68-31 to pass a reauthorization bill but the House did not do so because they felt it protected undocumented immigrants, Native Americans and lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender people, and barely passed its version in May 222 to 205. With no further action, the bill officially died. Abusers know there are cracks in the system, and they leap through them every day., said Linda Osmundson of the battered womens shelter in St. Petersburg. An aide to Leahys Senate Judiciary Committee said the bill will be introduced for reauthorization early when the 112th Congress convenes. Funding is already in place. According to the news service, Florida funds its domestic violence services primarily through a trust fund along with general revenues. Leiss Wiseman of the Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence said, the states domestic violence shelters turned away 3, 471 people in Fiscal Year 2011-2012.Ekv{"Mkemu Qhh"Jqognguu Xgvgtcpu Tgkpvgitcvkqp RtqitcoThe City of Jacksonville along with Military Affairs, Veterans and Disabled Services, launched the Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program (HVRP), funded by a $218.260 grant from the U. S. Department of Labor, to provide services to assist homeless veterans reintegrate into civilian life and help them gain meaningful employment. To utilize this service, the veteran must be homeless, living in a temporary shelter or be facing loss of housing through foreclosure or eviction, The emphasis on helping homeless acquire and retain jobs is enhanced through coordination with local veterans services and organizations, such as Work Source.

Kvu"Nkvvng"OggejkgJANUARY 12, 2013 THE STAR PAGE 3 One Sunday at Zion Hope Missionary Baptist Church, the Sunday School teacher, finished the lesson earlier than planned so, she decided to have a question & answer period. This was a great opportunity for Little Meechie so he raised his hand and said to the teacher, "There's something I can't figure out." "What's that Dementrious?" asked the teacher. "Well according' to the Bible, the Children of Israel crossed the Red Sea, right?" "Right," said the teacher. "And the Children of Israel beat up the Philistines, right?" "Er--right," she responded. "And the Children of Israel built the Temple, right?" "Again you're right." "And the Children of Israel fought the 'Egyptians; and the Children of Israel fought the Romans; and the Children of Israel were always doing something important, right?" "All that is right, too," agreed the teacher. So what's your question?" "What I want to know is this," said Lil Meechie. "If the children did all of that, what was all the grown-ups doing?"....I'm just asking.

This Saturday, January 12th will mark 25 years since the first lottery ticket went on sale, said Florida Lottery Secretary Cynthia O' Connell. And, as part of the silver anniversary, O' Connell says theyre revamping the Lotterys image with a new logo. The familiar flamingo and sunset logo will be gone, but she says its time to bring that flamingo into the 21st century with a modern design. The new brand has been in the works for about a year. The Florida and Georgia Star are not predictors. We are passing on some of the predictions that we have read and either agree or question. So, read these for knowledge or fun. 1. We will have more digital and mobile communications tools as well as more time saving devices. This means more growth in digital information and services. 2. Emphasis will be placed on education and our society will begin to read more as well as write more. Texting will increase. 3. Immigration reform will come through and the Republicans will stand with the Democrats with the hope of winning new seats or keeping their seats after realizing the strength of the minority voters that had been overlooked. There will be a large group that will not want reform so there will be strong border restrictions. 4. There will be changes on gun control. The main pressure will be on those who feel that assault weapons are more desirable in protecting themselves and families but it will be difficult for them to explain why a person would need multiple bullets to defend themselves. 5. Florida will make a change on the Stand Your Ground law because of the pressure based on the teens killed and changes in the gun law. 6. People may spend less keeping homes warm because home-heating oil and gas will b e cheaper as the economy improves. 7. Manufacturing jobs should pick up. Such will be a leading resource in jobs that really promote trades, and thats a really good way to go. Trades never go out of business plumbers, electricians, welders. All those things, theyre big jobs. 8. African Americans and others will see that the time is now for them to begin to supp ort each other if they wish to have economic growth. Looking back at history and the way things are now economically with such a high unemployment rate, the job market can only change with them making changes. 9. Imperva warns that hackers will increasingly target cloud services, where more of our data is kept. Small vulnerabilities in one service can be used to grab information which can be used to attack other services. 10. Well see the transfer of enormous wealth in a heartbeat. Even some of the very wealthy will lose everything overnight. Systems of finance are going to change and no matter what the experts think will happen, the actuality will be different. More people than ever will be affected. Pensions are no longer secure and indeed they may be unable to pay out when the time comes. Insurance companies will go under and people who have paid premiums in good faith may end up with nothing if the company is b ankrupt when their house is swept up in a tsunami or a fire burns down everything they own. The last prediction is just a warning to the rich, a nice way of saying, share.

PAGE 4 THE STAR JANUARY 12, 2013 Spa Laterra: Love Yourself in the New YearE kaabo (eh-kah-bow). Welcome Talk of the Town! by Frances Bradley / Photos by Volume Burks Healthy adjective Wholesome, well, hardy, vigor of body, mind, or spirit Pamper verb (tr). indulge, spoil, coddle At Spa Laterra, being healthy and being pampered are synonymous. Located adjacent to King & Bear Golf Course in World Golf Village, this elegant day spa offers a full complement of massages, facials, body scrubs and wraps, makeup artistry, hair care, and nail services. The gracious and dynamic owner, Juanita Wright, invited us for a tour of the facilities, and, it was evident from the moment we walked into the warm reception area that we were in for the experience of a lifetime. The first thing I noticed as I approached the reception desk was the laminated sign, prominently displayed, Spa Laterra welcomes The Florida Star. Before we started our services, Juanita showed us around the facility which has 11 treatment rooms, including 2 couples retreats, womens and mens private waiting rooms, locker areas, changing facilities, showers, and steam rooms, and a circular relaxation lounge with a soothing rain shower feature. The spa also offers an indoor/outdoor boardroom suite and party area with WIFI for social gatherings, business meetings, and catered events. After changing into comfortable robes and slippers, we were shown to the circular relaxation lounge, where guests are offered tea cookies and chilled green tea in champagne flutes while waiting to be taken to a treatment room. A variety of nuts, fruit-infused water, and other light refreshments are available on an invitingly arranged side board outside the lounge. At Juanitas suggestion, I had the Raindrop Therapy Massage, which combines massage with intermittent application of nine (9) essential oils, dribbled onto the spinal cord like rain drops. I was so totally relaxed that I wondered if I snored when I nodded off while on the table! The immediate result was a feeling of euphoria which made gave me the sense of floating on air. Long term (for several weeks post-treatment), I was greatly aware of the absence of a nagging headache that had bothered me for a couple of weeks, as well as the reduction of swelling in my feet which I had also been experiencing! Ok Sun had the Warm Algae Wrap and Hydrating and Exfoliating Body Treatment. This customized treatment uses a seaweed wrap to detoxify, nourish the skin, reduce water retention, and boost metabolism. An additional layer of essential oils are applied to help the skin absorb the nourishing vitamins and amino acids from the algae treatment. They hydro-machine, a horizontal wandlike apparatus, sweeps over the body to aid in restoring vital hydration to the system. Heres what Ok Sun thought of her experience: All I can say is there are two ways to get to the top of a mountain at a ski resort trudge up the mountain on foot or take a slow and easy ride on a ski lift. The end result is the same, but how you get there makes the difference. A Spa Laterra visit is like taking the ski lift! Juanita Wright hails from Toronto, Canada. As an aesthetician and make-up artist, she has worked with celebrities, such as First Lady Michelle Obama, Jennifer Lopez, Patti Labelle, Bill Murray, and more. Since taking over Spa Laterra, Juanita has generously supported local charities in monetary contributions, silent auction items, and donated services.

He then turned toward the deputy in an aggressive manner. A Taser was used and he finally complied. A search revealed a plastic baggie in his front pocket that contained cocaine. Police then observed a 22-year-old Anreka Shana Bristol hit a 29-year-old woman in the face with a chair. and turn over tables to attack the victim.

She finally complied and was then arrested. The victim was transported by EMS to the Hospital and was later released. The victim was said not to have been involved in the fight and was actually a spectator in the restaurant. When Bristol was arrested 28-yearold EddieLee Outing, the brother of the victim, picked up a chair and held it over his head as if he was going to strike someone. He was ordered to stop but would not put the chair down and then went toward the officer with the chair. A Taser had to be used on Eddie as well before being arrested.

Here are some things you should teach your children: Start with the Basics : Make sure your children know their full name, address (city and state), and their phone number with area code. Be sure kids know to call 911 in emergencies and how to use a public phone. Practice making emergency calls with a make-believe phone. Tell your children never to accept rides or gifts from someone they and you dont know well. Teach children to go to a store clerk, security guard, or police officer for help if lost in a mall or store, or on the street. Set a good example with your own actions: lock doors and windows, and check to see whos there before opening the door. Take time to listen carefully to your childrens fears and feelings about people and placesespecially ones that scare them or make them feel uneasy. Tell them to trust their instincts when something frightens or troubles them. At School and Play : Encourage your children to walk and play with friends, not alone. Tell them to avoid places that could be dangerous: vacant buildings, alleys, playgrounds or parks with broken equipment and litter. Teach children to settle arguments with words, not fists, and to walk away when others are arguing. Remind them that taunting and teasing can hurt friends and make enemies. Make sure your children are taking the safest routes to and from school, stores, and friends houses. Walk the routes together and point out places they could go for help. Encourage kids to be alert in the neighborhood, and to tell a trusted adult you, a teacher, a neighbor, a police officerabout anything that doesnt seem quite right. Check out the schools policies on absent childrenare parents called when a child is absent? Check out daycare and after-school programslook at certifications, staff qualifications, rules on parental permission for field trips, reputation in the community, policies on parent participation. Protecting Your Child Against Sexual Abuse : Teach your child that no onenot even a teacher or a close relativehas the right to touch him or her in a way that feels uncomfortable. Let them know that its okay to say no, get away, and tell a trusted adult. Tell your child to stay away from strangers who hang around playgrounds, public restrooms, and schools. Be alert for changes in your childs behavior that could signal sexual abuse: sudden secretiveness; withdrawal from activities; refusal to go to school; unexplained hostility toward a favorite babysitter or relative; increased anxiety. Some physical signs of abuse include bedwetting, loss of appetite, venereal disease, nightmares, and complaints of pain or irritation around the genitals. Your Safety Forensic Evidence Reveal Murder Suspect A murder suspect was arrested for a homicide from last year. On July 1, 2012 at approximately 5:18 p.m., detectives responded to a vacant field in reference to a deceased person that had been discovered. The deceased was found fully clothed and with a crack pipe in his mouth. The body was turned over to the Medical Examiners Office to determine the cause of death. On July 2, 2012, the Medical Examiners Office conducted an autopsy on the victim and determined the cause of death to be homicidal violence. The victim had suffered upper body trauma and with the help of investigative leads and collected evidence, the suspect was identified as 46-year-old David Choppa. A warrant was issued this month for Choppa for second degree murder, tampering with evidence and petit theft. Police arrested Choppa at his residence on the same day. David Choppa Couple Report Missing Child and Police find over 100 Animals in Cages Inside Their Home A couple reported a missing child but was arrested after police discovered over 100 caged animals in their home. Just before 6:00 a.m., police responded to a call about a missing 16-month-old girl. 28-year-old Jeffrey ONeil and 26-year-old Jennifer Kovacs reported that the child, who was in their care, had crawled out of the crib, opened the front door, and had been missing for at least an hour. When police arrived on the scene they discovered that the couple were under the influence of alcohol. At the scene, the officers found a note from a relative saying they had picked up the child and was taken her to their home. The relative also said they wrote the note because they could not wake ONeil and the child was crying. The child was found with the relative. She was reported to be in good condition and was properly being taken care of. As police conducted the investigation, they discovered the home to be in horrible conditions with over 100 animals in 88 cages. The types of animals found were snakes, lizards, rats, mice, birds, rabbits, hamsters, hedgehogs, etc. Police say the animals were being bred and sold without the proper licensing and conditions. Three rats and one hamster were found dead and half consumed by other animals kept in the house. The animals were kept outside and throughout the home. The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) was called to the scene to conduct their investigation and remove the animals from the home. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) was also notified. ONeil and Kovacs were arrested for child abuse and animal cruelty. Jeffrey ONeil Jennifer Kovacs

Jaguars Name Former Falcons Executive David Caldwell General ManagerJANUARY 12, 2013 THESTAR PAGE John Oehser Jaguars.com David Caldwell is the new general manager of the Jaguars. Caldwell, a member of the Atlanta Falcons front office since 2008 and the teams director of player personnel this past season, was hired as the Jaguars general manager on Tuesday, the team announced Tuesday evening. We got our man, Jaguars owner Shad Khan said in a statement. I have a lot of faith in David Caldwell and I can assure our fans that the best days for the Jacksonville Jaguars are in front of us. Khan hired Caldwell after a nine-day search that began the day following the Jaguars final regular season game. I am thrilled to accept the offer to become the next general manager of the Jacksonville Jaguars, Caldwell said. There are no bad GM opportunities in the NFL, but to work on behalf of a dynamic owner in a rabid football city like Jacksonville is truly special. This is where I wanted to be and I could not be happier. I can't wait to get to Jacksonville and get started. Caldwell this past season oversaw both the Falcons college and professional scouting efforts, working with Falcons General Manager Thomas Dimitroff in those areas. He also played a day-to-day role in the analysis and evaluation of the Falcons current roster while aiding in the research on how to acquire future free agents, according to the Falcons. Caldwell, who spent 10 years with the Indianapolis Colts while that franchise developed into a perennial playoff team and Super Bowl contender, spent 2008-2012 as the Falcons director of college scouting. In that role, he oversaw the teams college area and regional scouts. According to the Falcons, Caldwell also assimilated the information he received and presented it to Dimitroff with a goal of making the NFL Draft as effective as possible. Caldwell in Indianapolis worked with then-President Bill Polian, joining the Colts when Polian took over that organization in 1998. Caldwell worked for the Colts from 1998-2007, spending his last two seasons there as a Western Regional Scout, with responsibilities including the Pac 10, Big 10 and Big 12. He previously had worked as an area scout, having started his NFL career with Polian with the Carolina Panthers in 1996-1997 as a scouting assistant. Caldwell, 38, attended John Carroll University. A native of Buffalo, New York, Caldwell and his wife, Joelle, have one son, David Michael II. Former Sharks Player Dies In Pre-Holiday Traffic AccidentThe Jacksonville Sharks organization mourned the loss of former Shark defensive lineman Jerry Brown, who was tragically killed in an auto accident in Irving, Texas early in December. He was 25. We are extremely saddened by the passing of Jerry Brown, Jr., Sharks managing partner Jeff Bouchy said. Our deepest sympathies go out to his family and friends. Jerry was a beloved Shark, and all who knew him in our organization loved him. He will be sorely missed. Jerry was a great player, teammate and champion, Sharks Head Coach Les Moss said. He made the most of his time with the Sharks and reached the goal of all AFL players by making it to the NFL. This is a truly sad and tragic loss of life for a young man whose best days were ahead of him. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all his family and teammates who knew and loved him for the great person he was. Brown played a significant role on the Sharks ArenaBowl-winning team in 2011, ranking tied for second on the team with six sacks and third among Shark defenders with tackles for loss. He began the 2012 season with the San Antonio Talons before joining the Indianapolis Colts. He was elevated to the Colts active roster for one game in October, and then signed with the Cowboys practice squad October 24. Brown was a native of St. Louis, Missouri and played college football at Illinois.
